  13. 13
    Press down on this option, then we're looking for the first option at the top that says "Languages".
    Right now it says "Default primary: English (UK) Others: Espanol (Espana)". This function allows us to edit the primary language for the Google voice typing function, which can be very useful. Even though it's set to English, for example, if you're from an English-speaking country such as Australia or even India, where there are many native speakers who speak English as a first language, the accent is very different. If we have the wrong setting, then it will make it difficult for Google to understand your voice. That's why setting the primary language can be very useful.
